Spring has finally sprung and students are finally on their way with their learning! It is amazing how in the spring what you have been teaching just seems to start coming together and the students are getting stronger in their skills.
For kindergarten, and even my first graders that had been struggling, they are getting so much better at hearing sounds in words. Yay! So now is the time to put all those skills into practice and get them good and solid! For my first graders that are in RtI interventions, now is the time to be sure they have got it and can show it!
My students just love working with these type of activities. I am sure yours do too. There are 6 different center activities in all to give your students extra practice to show they know their stuff!
K.RFS.1 b- Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print- recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters
K.RFS.2 b, d- Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds- count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words, isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds in 3 phoneme words
K.RFS.3 a, b- Know and apply grade level phonics and word analysis in decoding words- demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant, associate the long and short vowel sounds with the common spellings for the five major vowels
1.RFS.2 a, c, d- Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds- distinguish long from short vowel sounds in spoken single syllable words, isolate and pronounce initial, medial vowel, and final sounds in spoken single-syllable words, segment spoken single-syllable words into their complete sequence of individual sounds
1.RFS.3 c, e - Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words- know final-e and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds, decode 2 syllable words following basic patterns by breaking the words into syllables
The centers included are short vowel scrambler, long vowel (using silent e) scrambler, beginning sounds, middle sounds, ending sounds and syllable counting and graphing. They are great to use as centers or small groups. Or like I mentioned above, I love using these types of activities with my RtI intervention groups.
I hope these can help you and your students out! It is amazing how fast the year has gone and how quickly we will be sending them on to the next grade. I am feeling the pressure to be sure everyone is ready and their learning solid. I always feel that I need more time! How about you??
